“We couldn’t be more ready or excited to introduce our amazing fans to the new and evolved sound behind 78Violet,” says Aly and AJ Michalka in a press statement. “These two upcoming shows will allow us to share a small taste of the alternative pop vibe that you’ll hear on the album in an organic and up close and personal setting.”

The sisters came onto the scene in 2005 with their debut album “Into the Rush,” which has sold 839,000 copies to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The girls are best known for singles “Rush” and “Chemicals React,” which both cracked the BHot 100. “Insomniatic,” their last album under the name Aly & AJ, was released in 2007 and peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Since leaving Hollywood Records in 2009, the duo has been active in film and television. Aly starred in the cancelled CW drama “Hellcats” and will appear in the upcoming film “Grown Ups 2,” while AJ had small parts in “Super 8” and “The Lovely Bones.”

The newly refreshed duo have been working on material for an upcoming album, which is “soon to be released,” according to a press blast. “Hothouse” was produced by David Kahne, and its music video will also be released on July 8.
